LEMONT— State Senator John Curran is launching his third annual ‘Valentines for Seniors’ card drive to help provide love and cheer to seniors in the 41st Senate District.
Sen. Curran is asking students, churches, scouting organizations and other community-minded groups to donate homemade or store-bought cards to his office to be delivered to assisted living centers, nursing homes, and long-term care facilities across the 41st Senate District.
“The district has really stepped up, donating almost 2,000 cards over the last few years,” said Sen. Curran. “We hope that all schools, social groups and families will consider donating cards to help spark some special joy for seniors in our community.”
Cards, poems, and other well-wishes can be mailed or dropped off to Sen. Curran’s District Office at: 1011 State Street, Suite 205 in Lemont, until February 10. Those dropping off cards in-person can place them in the valentine box located inside the office door during business hours, which are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., or in the small mailbox outside of the office during off-hours.
“Each senior in these facilities has their own story,” said Curran. “These cards honor those stories and show them that we cherish and appreciate their lives and contributions. I am thankful to every person who takes the time to do this small thing that sparks such great joy.” For additional information about this community outreach event, please contact Sen. Curran’s office at (630) 914-5733 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
